Ice Storm and Knitting

Can I be ANYMORE lazy today?

The answer is NO.

I mean, I am still in my PJ!!!

But, I passed my Continue Ed test for my insurance license, I FINALLY blocked Diamond Spires Shawl, and I whipped up Baby Cable Rib Neckwarmer/Headband in under 2 hours! Take a look:

Pattern – Diamond Spires Shawl by Anne Davenport
Yarn Used – 2.5 skeins of Judith in Jane Addams
Needles – Denise size 6
Gauge – N/A
Knit – November 17, 2007 to November 29, 2007
Blocked – December 16, 2007
Modifications – None

This was pretty easy to memorize once I created a chart for the diamond pattern. I find reading charts are much easier for me than the written pattern.

Pattern – Baby Cable Rib Neckwarmer/Headband by Kerry Moorhouse
Yarn Used – 1 skeins of GGH Aspen in #19
Needles – Harmony size 9
Hook – Boyd size I
Gauge – N/A
Knit – December 16, 2007
Modifications – I used crochet cast off instead of a regular cast off

I will be getting some buttons tomorrow during lunch so this is ready to be shipped.

And I started Aspen Top Down Sweater from Knitting Classic Style by Veronik Avery. I am using the yarn called for, and I think this is the first time I used the yarn the patterns calls for for a sweater! I only have the first three rows done, but it is quite interesting as everything is done twisted!

Oh, and I should mention that I made a killer beef stew today – definitely a perfect meal for the weather we have here tonight. And my secret ingredient – Apple Cider. It is something I made up but it is so good! Maybe I’ll put up the recipe if anyone out there is interested.

And lastly, Patriots won 🙂 Totally a perfect day today. Now without changing, I’ll be rolling back to bed. Night.

  1. I agree, I like chart better too!

    The neckwarmer/headband looks so nice. I can’t wait too what kind of buttons you are going to use for it.
